about the economy and how it potentially could impact the president's political strength this year going into his second term. 157,000 jobs created in january. you take a look at the -- a lot of jobs created last year. still not moving. the economic growth as much as should -- but if you take a look at the jobs that have been created, you take a look at the dow jones. 14,000, it was under 7,000 when he attack office. how much of a political impact will it have on the president going forward on the agenda? >> i think it is a reminder how the dysfunction in congress could hurt the country going forward. we're not out of this yet, wolf. nothing is robust, as you look at the question of spending cuts, what are you going to do? i think this serves as a reminder that congress needs to get something done. it is just hanging out there. >> you know, it is a low-grade fever, the president is moving very aggressively on his agenda, on immigration, on guns, on the contraception ruling that came out this week. he is speaking on the new coalition -- without economic growth, i mean, that is really the
? >> guest: what i see is in an economy that isn't growing fast enough to produce many jobs. the unemployment rate was 7.8% in december, and, you know, it had looked like it was moving down and now we see that it pops up. and the reason for that is 157,000 jobs created in an economy with 140 million workers is not a lot. it's not enough to keep up with growth in the labor force, so, you know, this is a fundamental problem in our economy. you might argue the fundamental problem in our economy right now is that we're not growing fast enough to bring the unemployment rate down to levels that most americans would find acceptable. and we can have a loan discussion about -- long discussion about why we're not growing fast enough. you know, you could argue that the economy needs more investment, that the government should be providing more stimulus. you could argue the government is getting in the way. you can also argue that it's a res due of the financial crisis. >> host: the number of employed persons was -- little changed in january. the number of long-term unem employed unchanged to 4.7 million
. look what is going on in the u.s. economy because we got brand new jobs numbers that just came out and they show sluggish hiring in the month of january. the labor department reported that the national unemployment rate jumped a little bit, now 7.9% up from 7.8% from the previous month. that doesn't really include people who decided they wouldn't look for work anymore and dropped out of the workforce for the time-being. the latest report showed employers added 15,000 jobs last month, not enough to really stimulate the economy -- 157,000. or create a new jobs growth picture. bring in fox business network senior correspondent charles gasparino. what is your take on these? >> not uniformly terrible. we added jobs in prior months. revised some of the job additions upward. we did create jobs but what i will tell you is carry about this number the narrative remains the same. this is an extremely slow-growing economy that is producing jobs at a very meager rate. when more people look for jobs unemployment ticks up. a quirk in the numbers. takes too long to explain why. the narrative, mart
